|Healthcare law lives and Georgia faces big choices|

Among the biggest winners in Tuesday's elections was President Barack Obama's signature legislative achievement.
The Affordable Care Act may not be the most popular of laws. In fact, exit polls in several states Tuesday found about half the voters want the sweeping 2010 health care legislation repealed or changed, CNN reported.
But Republican plans to "repeal and replace'' the law have hit a brick wall. With Democrats keeping control of both the White House and the U.S. Senate, the ACA will remain the law of the land, and the portions of it that have not yet taken effect are on track to do so.
Health Care Law Delivers Higher Payments to Primary Care Physicians
Nov 2, 2012
Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius yesterday announced the final rule implementing the part of the health care law that delivers higher payments to primary care physicians serving Medicaid beneficiaries. The new rule raises rates to ensure doctors are paid the same for treating Medicare and Medicaid patients and does not raise costs for states.
"The health care law will help physicians serve millions of Americans across the country," Secretary Sebelius said. "By improving payments for primary care services, we are helping Medicaid patients get the care they need to stay healthy and treat small health problems before they become big ones."
